Post Russia’s “Sausage King” killed with crossbow in his home sauna

Russia’s “Sausage King” killed with crossbow in his home sauna

A photo posted on Facebook by Alexander Marugov shows him with his father Vladimir Marugov. The elder was reportedly killed at his home near Moscow on November 2, 2020, while Alexander died in a motorcycle accident in 2019.

The story goes as follows:

A Russian oligarch reportedly nicknamed the "Sausage King" was killed with a crossbow in his sauna after masked robbers broke into his home, investigators said Monday. The man and his wife were in their banya — a traditional Russian sauna — outside Moscow when several masked men entered, tied them up and "demanded they give up the money kept in their home," Russia's Investigative Committee said.

The wife managed to get free and alert the police, who discovered the man's body, the Committee said in a statement.

"While inspecting the scene, investigators seized the crossbow the man was shot with," it added.

The robbers escaped in the victim's car, which was found near Istra, a town west of Moscow.

One suspect was arrested Monday evening, Russian news agencies reported.

The Committee, which probes major crimes, did not name the victim, but Russian media widely reported that it was Vladimir Marugov, who owns numerous meat-processing factories and is known as the "Sausage King," according to the Interfax news agency.

According to BBC News, Marugov's adult son Alexander died in a motorcycle accident in Moscow in 2019.

Personal comment: I put this crime in Medieval because of the weapon used to kill this guy. A crossbow seems to me to be a medieval choice of weapons.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
